  • Linux version: not completely integrated with Nautilus?


    I'm testing the Linux version now on Ubuntu 11.

    It works fine when comparing two files or dirs on the "normal" filesystem
    But fails to recognize paths like smb:// or other funny prefixes (you get the smb:// prefix when connect to Windows share)

    Other Gnome apps, like gedit, have no problem to open files on smb:// would be great if you could make this work as well.

    Thanks in advance and best regards,

    Thanks for the suggestion. Connecting to Samba shares using smb:// is on our wish list for a future release of BC3 for Linux.

    In the current version 3.2.4, you'll have to use the mount command in a terminal to mount Samba shares to a local folder before you can access them in BC3.

      I was about to start a new thread asking the same thing.

      Trying to use BC on Linux to compare against a remote Windows machine, but it returns a "folder not available" error when using any smb path.

      Trying to mount as a local directory isn't working, so I'm going to have to do this another way entirely.

        Trying out mount as a local directory isn't mounting correctly in Ubuntu or isn't browsing correctly in BC3?
